    A robust, well-rooted, small-tree species of the Rose genus produces almonds as its fruit. There are many different types of almonds, but the two most popular and well-known ones are the Sweet and the Bitter. Usually, only sweet almonds are easily palatable.

    Almonds are easily found in stores and utilised in a wide range of recipes, particularly those for desserts and confections. Moreover, almond paste and oil are frequently used in cosmetics and toiletries.

    Tree nuts, which include almonds, are among the top ten allergens. If you have an allergy to one kind of tree nut, you probably have allergies to other kinds as well.

    An individual's immune system response causes them to develop an almond allergy. Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies are made against particular substances because the body perceives them as hazardous compounds. The signs of an allergic response are brought on by these antibodies, which produce histamine.

    Some people may experience life-threatening reactions to raw almonds and almond-containing foods. An allergic response may cause the following common symptoms:

    • Loss of consciousness 
    • Breathlessness 
    • Persistent itching or hives
    • Lip, tongue, or throat swelling
    • Anaphylaxis

    Almonds are a part of different food products in addition to being consumed in their natural form. If you frequently experience an adverse reaction after eating almonds, you may want to stay away from products like:

    • Almond milk and flour
    • Almond-crusted meat or salmon
    • Flavoured or unflavoured almonds
    • Almond essence
    • Certain baked items with almond additives, garnishes, or crusts

    In an Almond Allergy Test, the IgE levels provided in KU/L, or kilo units per litre, are examined to ascertain the Almond allergy's diagnosis. The immune system must have IgE antibodies to react to allergens connected to allergic conditions.

    If your test results' IgE value is lower than 0.35 KU/L, there is likely no proof of an almond allergy. Your test results indicate an allergic response is probable if the IgE level ranges from 0.70 to 17.5.

    Values above 17.5 indicate positive results, which patients occasionally experience. An almond allergy has no known cure. Therefore, reducing consumption is the only course of action.

    Apollo 24|7 offers a quick, almost painless Almond Allergy test to determine whether or not someone is allergic to almonds. The test's method is simple and similar to other blood tests. An Almond Allergy test is especially helpful in:

    • Making a diagnosis of almond allergy
    • Determining the allergens responsible for allergic reactions or Anaphylactic shock 
    • Obtaining evidence of hypersensitivity prior to beginning immunotherapy
    • Researching the specificity of immunological reactions to medications or allergens

    Almond-containing food products or almond oil might be good to eat because heat breaks down a lot of proteins, but it's important to consult an allergist first. If you exhibit symptoms of an almond allergy, you must refrain from eating almonds and anything derived from them until it is deemed safe.

    Numerous tree nuts, such as almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, pistachios, brazil nuts, cashews, and walnuts, can cause allergies. Most people, though, won't respond to all of these nuts and may only do so to certain proteins found in particular types.
    To determine if a person is allergic to almonds or food items that have undetectable traces of almonds, an Almond Allergy test counts allergen-specific IgE antibodies in the blood.
    Almond allergy side effects can span from rashes to Anaphylaxis, a possibly fatal reaction that impedes breathing and can put the body into shock. They typically appear minutes after consumption of almonds. In fact, between 20% and 40% of episodes of Anaphylaxis are caused by a tree nut allergy.
